Do you know the rights and responsibilities of parenting if you or your former spouse choose to live more than 50 miles away from your child? Florida has specific laws and statutes that are important to know if you or the other parent of your child choose to move away. If you or your former spouse are choosing to move, do you plan to take your child with you? If you or your former spouse are thinking about potentially relocating, it is important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible.
Have both parents agreed to the situation? We believe in doing everything as respectfully and amicably as possible. In a perfect world, both parents would be open to the idea of relocation and somehow make it work; however, a move can be stressful, emotional, and unbearable for the other party, and we want you to know we understand how this could be difficult for you and your family.
We will prepare a Relocation Agreement as well as a Notice of Intent to Relocate. Both of these documents will be discussed with all the parties involved to resolve this situation in the best way possible. These documents must be agreed to by the Court and will be discussed in extreme detail. There will also be a Court hearing if these agreements are not agreed to by both parties. As your lawyers, we want to do what is best for you and your child. For questions on the Florida laws regarding relocation or what you need to know when planning to relocate, please contact our firm.
